Ever since, tides have fascinated scientific minds throughout history.   Tides affect marine ecosystems by influencing the kinds of plants and animals that thrive in what is known as the intertidal zone—the area between high and low tide.

The Proxigean Spring Tide is a rare, unusually high tide.

Neap Tides. Neap tides are especially weak tides.
